Celebrate Springtime in Tallahassee

Downtown Road Closures This Weekend

This weekend is Springtime Tallahassee, which means that residents and visitors alike will be buzzing around downtown Tallahassee enjoying food, family and fun. An expected crowd of more than 150,000 people will join in celebrating the event’s 50th anniversary.

The weekend fun begins on Friday night, April 6, at the music festival on Kleman Plaza, which is free and open to the public. Tobacco Rd Band will get the event rocking. Parmalee goes on stage at 7:30 p.m., and headliner Scotty McCreery begins his set at 9 p.m.

The festivities rev into high gear on Saturday, April 7, with the annual Springtime Tallahassee 10K, Grand Parade and Jubilee in the Park. There will also be a kids’ area in E. Peck Greene Park where your young ones can enjoy face painting, pony rides and a host of other magical experiences. During the parade on Saturday, look for a variety of entries from various City departments, including City leadership on the bright red trolley.
